In March 2008 I began Finding Pennies. In December 2008 I began sharing these "Penny Tales" with a few close friends. They encouraged me to blog the Penny Tales such that more people could enjoy the Adventures with Penny Angels.

New Trainees

In discussions with our neighbors, Doc and I had mentioned how much we enjoy going for Chinese Accupressure massages. A 1-hour treatment is so effective and fairly inexpensive.  Our neighbors, Paul and Jay were a little hesitant to try it out on their own, so this evening Doc and I “showed them the ropes”.  It was fun to introduce them to the process and besides, my body needed the treatment. 

It was around 8:30 p.m. and dark outside when we emerged from the Chinese massage session.  We were all heading back to the car when I realized I had not yet found a coin today and mentioned that to everyone.  They laughed and said they wanted to “see me in action” and see how this Penny Finding stuff really works.  I asked them if they were serious?  They said “Yes”.

Now the pressure was on … Doc and Jay walked around the parking area to look for coins, while Paul and I dashed into the grocery store.  No coins after 5 minutes of searching.  So I sent a quiet plea to the Penny Angels, “PLEASE show these guys that Manifesting really does work”.  I asked the guys if they wanted to look a few more minutes and they agreed.  While Paul looked at the new Halloween store, I quickly ran into the Trader Joe’s.  Sure enough!  There was one shiny penny there!  Thank you Angels.  Of course, when I emerged from the store, the guys were saying “Yeah, sure, you FOUND a penny in there. You probably just took it out of your purse!”
I asked the guys if they were willing to spend 10 more minutes searching and playing?  If so, we would go across the street to the closed car wash area where I was pretty sure each of them would be able to find a coin of their own (even in the dark). 

The guys agreed to go to the car wash.  I was desperately praying, “C’mon Angels, don’t let me down now.  Help them find coins”.  Doc parked the van, we got out flashlights, and began our searching.  At first I saw nothing in the usual main area.  Then on a raised curb, I noticed a pile of debris.  I shined the flashlight on it.  No way!!!  A PILE of pennies!  There were at least 25 pennies and one dime sitting in a pile!  That sure made believers of everyone.  We continued to look around in other areas.  Paul and Jay each found two pennies and Doc collected three.  We joked about what the guys would tell their coworkers.  “This weekend I experienced a Chinese Foot Massage followed by a Penny Finding Training Session”!  Life is Hilarious.
